    Quick question re: Bisonics

    Is the chrome surround conductive? I'm working on making a replacement mount and there is a wire leading from the ground lug into the rubbery glue they used to mount the pup. I could then laminate aluminum sheet between layers of abs and solve both durability and shielding issues. Actually...

    Can someone school me on these? I bought a bunch of stuff from somebody that got out of the repair business, and apparently I have a bunch of power amps based on ICs that could be used for something like this.

    Ok. (Transformer talk)

    I'm looking into having some transformers made with 6v, 50v, and 110 windings for those shock-o-matic mid-50's Guild amps. In order to make these safe, this is the only elegant way to do it.

There's a little bit high for what I normally would want to pay, but I saw some things on there that were kind of unique. So I put it on the GC credit card, and just chided myself for having no...

I chiseled off as much as I could with a blade, but there is some residual glue that needs to come off. What...

    Political discussion

    I want to remind members that politics is off-limits on LTG. Your moderators will slam the door on any discussion which goes in that direction. In the U.S. this is an election year and I'm quite sure most of us have our opinions about the subject, but they are not to be expressed, indulged, or...
